Draw My Life

Hey guys,

I have seen this going around YouTube a lot before so I wanted to do one as well but I wanted to do a Blogger version. I'm not a good drawer so please bear with me. This was a fun post to create. I hope you enjoy it!

I was born on December 28th, 1990 making me 26 years old.  I was my parents' third child with 2 older brothers "D" and "B".

In elementary school, I was the quiet student. I was actually diagnosed with Selective Mutism. My teachers were understanding and didn't force me to talk if I didn't want to. You can check out my post about overcoming Selective Mutism here.

When I was 7, my mom had my younger brother, "J".

The summer before my sophomore year of high school, my mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. She was only 45 years old. Since then she has had Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery (D.B.S). You can check out how it is to have a parent with Parkinson's Disease, here.

I was in my first relationship at age 21. We broke up before 2 months. You can read why we broke up here.

In 2013, my parents got divorced. My older brothers and I knew that it was coming. We actually thought it would happened earlier.

My second boyfriend was in 2012-2014. We were actually engaged but he broke off the engagement with the reasoning that his feelings changed. It turned out in the end that he was cheating on me.

Since then, I have been in 5 other relationships which you can read in the picture of how they all ended.  I have been cheated on, abused and ditched. 

In 2013 after being graduated for some time, I decided to enroll in an online college for Early Childhood Development. In 2015, I completed my Associate Degree. During those years, I developed some great friendships with "A", "K" and "S". 

I decided to continue my schooling and currently in the process of finishing my Bachelor year. I only have 4 more classes left! Here are some online college tips.

One of the main reasons that I started my blog is to bring awareness to bullying. Throughout elementary,middle and high schools, I have been bullied. I want to help put an end to it. Check out my post about ending bullying here.

Due to some personal circumstances in my life at the time, I needed a way to vent and that's when I decided to start a blog. First blog post, here. Stay tuned for an updated post about where I am now.

Even though I have some hard times which everyone does. I know that there are plenty of more good times ahead.

  1. Wow, a lot has gone on in your short life! But (at twice your age and then some!) I can assure you of one thing... There ARE plenty of good times ahead!

  2. This turned out awesome! It sounds like you've had some hard experiences though. I loved hearing about how you got into blogging.

    1. Thank you! :) The hard experiences just makes the good experiences worth it even more.
